News and Record “wrights” about bloggers

Was following up on my daily fix of news when I ran across this article in News & Record following a link from Hogg.
It was on community activist Ben Holder, of whom I have the utmost admiration for since I wouldn’t be able to do the things that he does. Then a little something caught my eye when I glanced at the picture… “Ben Holder, a community activist wrights a blog, The Greensboro Troublemaker.” I couldn’t believe my eyes. Was the News and Record playing a trick on my poor vocabulary skills?
So I went to my trusty dictionary and looked up “wright”:

wright n. – One that constructs or repairs something. Often used in combination: a playwright; a shipwright.

Okay, so I’m not mistaken. So I got down to business posting it and got a hold of the proper authorities to take care of the issue. I guess you can call me a newswright, just as Ben Holder is a blogwright.
Oops.
